Greater Toronto Area Chapter of CCHL and Abbott present
Addressing Overcrowding in the Emergency Department
featuring Dr. Paul Jarvis

January 26th, 2016
5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Southlake Regional Health Centre, Newmarket Ontario

The GTA Chapter of the Canadian College of Health Leaders in partnership with Abbott is thrilled to announce our first event at Southlake Regional Health Centre.  Joining us is world renowned Emergency Department physician Dr. Paul Jarvis from the NHS.  

With Emergency Departments (EDs) ‘under enormous strain due to overcrowding and patients being asked to avoid hospital EDs, there are many questions to be answered in the search for ED efficiency.  Many hospitals are noticing major incidents over high ED numbers, so a solution that helps patient flow and reduces the wait time, whilst giving the staff a better and effective way of producing test results, can only be a welcome addition to hospital EDs. Paul has found that by using the i-STAT system to take and process the various blood tests, reduced test times and greatly enhanced the patient flow.

This interactive talk will help many people working in EDs understand the advantages of the i-STAT system.

Topics included:
  • Why do we have overcrowding?
  • What does the ED flow system look like?
  • The importance of keeping to Takt Time
  • How can the i-STAT system help?
  • Benchtop Blood Gas Analysers vs i-STAT
